Growing up in London in the late 1970’s Madeleine Black was brutally raped at the age of 13 by two American teenagers, and raped three more times before the age of eighteen. Living in a state of shock and self-loathing, it took years of struggle to confront the buried memories of that first attack and to begin to undo the damage it had wrought.
Madeleine Black is now a counsellor in Glasgow and married with children. She has written Unbroken to help break down the silence, stigma and shame of sexual violence. Her empowering story offers hope to others and shows that it’s never too late to get help. She believes that it’s not what happens to us that is important but how we deal with it - if we choose to we can get past anything. For Madeleine, forgiveness was the key. True forgiveness takes a real desire to understand those who have done us so much harm. It is the ultimate act of courage.
